I agree. The time? Now. The place? Here. Dictionaries are updated and republished EVERY SINGLE YEAR.

Wrong. The codifying in this case is alphabatizing, which makes the definitions more accesible. The Dictionary was assembled to provide definitions for words that people (like you) don't understand.

Wrong. There is no justification of anything's existence in the Dictionary. This is such total bullshit I'm suprised you actually wrote it. If this is true, what is the word for someone who believes certain races are superior to others? Without a concrete set of definitions words entirely lose their meaning and become intangible things subject to the whims of fools like you. And could you please explain to me how the definition of "racism" justifies the existence of white people? LOL
